, a man named jim eberhart posts an online ad selling his 58-foot yacht -- the infinity. allegedly, no stranger to making a sales pitch, eberhart tells prospective buyers the boat is perfect for cruising the world. when it was built, he says, there was no budget. what buyers might not know is that there's a reason money was once no object. richard ryan, supervisory special agent with the los angeles fbi, says eberhart ran a sham internet-video company that allegedly bilked investors out of millions, then fled the country. >> mr. eberhart's been a fugitive from justice. the investigation shows that he did wire money to hong kong and then, subsequently, singapore, and this could be the way that mr. eberhart has been facilitating his lifestyle as a fugitive. >> narrator: now on the run for more than a decade, eberhart seems to be thumbing his nose at authorities. he's selling the yacht under his real name. is he desperate for cash, or has he just grown bold after years as a fugitive? >> after several years, some folks tend to let their guard down. however, i'm sure mr. eberhart is con
it in a situation like this, jim. i'm happy to report there was not any indication of any calls last night that people were thinking about their own pnl or business model. trying to make a decision that was right for all of the market participants. we ended up doing that. my bias is to keep markets open but this is a pretty easy decision from our point of view in the end. it's not worth putting people in danger. it's no time to be a hero. it's silly. >> what happened where initially there was a take it would open? when we were at goldman in 1985, the issue is there's no internet or real connection. we didn't have these things. we have internet and people who say we don't even need new york city anymore. how about the out of town guys who thought this was a great chance to trump new york? >> again, we got none of that from the other venues that are located outside of manhattan. there was no talk about them staying open. it goes back to what bob said. if a couple of the major markets are closed, i think you're doing everyone else a disservice if just a few thinly traded venues which would ev

[ laughter ] >> don't say anything. >> let's talk about this storm and the effects on the campaign, the effect it had. were the campaigns pushed back very greatly, peter, let me start with you? >> i think it's in some ways it's tough on the president because he's missing three days, mitt romney missed about a day or so, not even that. and this is important to be out there to energize your troops, get them going, but, look, you know, politics takes a second stage in this kind of situation. the president did the right thing in even chris christie in new jersey, who he's touring with today, was very laudatory about the president. i don't think i can handicap this one way or the other who it would really help but it does take the campaign off the front pages for a few days, that's for sure. >> jim, we saw mitt romney in ohio yesterday helping storm damage victim, sort of blending the two, or did his campaign get put on hold? >> they're donating, instead of getting campaign know nation donations, the
